Installing Wordpress from Marketplace


I have been trying to install the one click WordPress installation on Ubuntu 18.04 from the marketplace

When i SSH into the droplet and run the configuration and everything seems to have been successfull with the message:

Installation complete. Access your new WordPress site in a browser to continue.

When i then continue to the website, i dont get the normal installation process where i setup the credentials for wp-admin, the wp-admin is however accessable

How do i go about this, how do i login to the wp-admin?

As mentioned before, we can’t configure WP user and password through SSH, that’s the problem…

Hi @webwizard,

The installation process you see when you SSH on the droplet is actually it. You configure your admin account there as well.

Basically, the whole installation of your WordPress website is done via your Terminal. You set your user and password there as well. Afterwards, you just need to use it and enter your wp-admin area.
